The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY24 is not expected to be complete until March, 2025.

Download all SBIR.gov award data either with award abstracts (290MB) or without award abstracts (65MB). A data dictionary and additional information is located on the Data Resource Page. Files are refreshed monthly.

The SBIR.gov award data files now contain the required fields to calculate award timeliness for individual awards or for an agency or branch. Additional information on calculating award timeliness is available on the Data Resource Page.

  1. Efficient Composite Repair Methods for Launch Vehicles

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: T1202

    Polymer matrix composites are increasingly replacing traditional metallic materials in NASA launch vehicles. However, the repair and subsequent inspection methods for these materials are considerably more complicated. Typically, a composite laminate patch must be manually fabricated and bonded or co-cured to the damaged structure. To ensure high quality patches with sufficient compaction and l ...

  2. Prediction and Control of Selective Laser Melting Product Microstructure

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: T1204

    Despite the rapid commercialization of additive manufacturing technology such as selective laser melting, SLM, there are gaps in models for material microstructure and property prediction that slow qualification and certification. Improvements in coupling microstructure prediction models to local process conditions, validation, and control of material microstructure are required to mature the stat ...

  3. Maneuvering Environment for Tiltwing Aircraft with Distributed Electric Propulsion

    SBC: EMBEDDED DYNAMICS LLC            Topic: T1501

    The tiltwing class of aircraft consists of vehicles with the ability to rotate the wing and propulsion system as a unit a full 90 degrees from the standard fixed wing configuration to one in which the wing and thrust axis become perpendicular to the body axis. This thrust vectoring capability allows the aircraft to utilize thrust borne flight for vertical takeoff and landing as well as the convent ...

  4. Next Generation Water Recovery for a Sustainable Closed Loop Living

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: T601

    Among the numerous technological advances sought in order to facilitate human space travel, solutions and innovations are needed for techniques that supports the mass- and energy-efficient maintenance of closed air, water, and waste systems in spacecraft habitats that operate within microgravity. As missions are foreseen to be extended with limited earth resupply available there is need to develop ...

  5. Elemental Resource Breakdown Approach to Crew-Vehicle Design

    SBC: THE SPACE RESEARCH COMPANY LLC            Topic: T603

    TSRCo and CU are developing a framework to quantify and predict crew performance in various spacecraft designs in the context of the design process. The framework utilizes an elemental resource breakdown approach to relate the crew, the spacecraft design, and operations. The elements identified in the breakdown correspond to existing measures currently used in the physiological, cognitive, and ps ...

  6. The Development of an Optic Fiber Based Hybrid Spectroscope

    SBC: LASER & PLASMA TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: T801

    Laser & Plasma Technologies (LPT), teamed with the National Science Foundation (NSF) Center for Lasers at the University of Virginia (UVA), proposes an advanced optical fiber coupled hybrid spectroscope for in situ characterization of organic compounds. The proposed approach provides information on organic compounds by analyzing spectra obtained from Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) an ...

  7. Heterogeneous Silicon Photonics OFDR Sensing System

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: T802

    Luna will team with Dr. John Bowers of UCSB to develop an Optical Frequency Domain Reflectometry (OFDR) system-on-chip using heterogeneous silicon photonics to enable a minimal weight structural health monitoring system. This system-on-chip will be the building block for distributed sensing interrogation systems that are the size of a deck of playing cards. This lightweight, rugged, and miniature ...

  8. Unified In-Space Propulsion Framework for Prediction of Plume-Induced Spacecraft Environments

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: T102

    Chemical contamination of spacecraft components as well as thermal and force loading from firing liquid propellant thrusters are critical concerns for in-space propulsion applications. Gas molecular contamination and liquid droplet deposition due to incomplete combustion threaten to damage surface materials, sensitive instruments and optical sensors, and poses major risks for mission success. Liqu ...

  9. Integrated Sensors for the Evaluation of Structural Integrity of Inflatable Habitats

    SBC: NANOSONIC INC.            Topic: T1203

    Inflatable pressurized habitats are envisioned as a practical way to build shelters much larger than landing craft for astronauts and their scientific operations on Mars, the moon and elsewhere. These habitats maintain their inflated shape via high-strength Vectran webbing. The piezoresistive extensometers developed through this STTR program can be directly integrated into or onto Vectran webbing ...

  10. Empirical Optimization of Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Universal Technology Corporaration            Topic: T1204

    In this Phase II STTR project, the proposed collaborative effort between UTC, AFIT, and ULRF represents a crucial step forward for AM. UTC’s unique AM optimization and process control framework, constructed entirely from experimental sensor data collected in-situ, will finally transfer technology from our SLM test bed system to state-of-the-art and commercial-grade systems, including a Concept ...
